The BMW M5 is considered the forefather of all modern sports saloons.
While the first generation, with only 3019 examples, was still an insider’s tip for sporty, wealthy drivers of the 1980s, the successor of the E34 model, which was still handcrafted, was many times more successful in selling to the public.
However, compared to the 1,331,056 BMW 5 Series built in this era, the 11,989 units of the M5 according to BMW are still very few.
BMW M5 E34: total production 11.989 Stück
BMW M5 3.6 Limousine: 3019 Stück (gebaut 8/1988-8/1992)
BMW M5 3.8 Limousine: 8079 Stück (gebaut 9/1992-8/1995)
BMW M5 3.8 Touring: 891 Stück (gebaut 9/1992-8/1995)
This Calypsorot BMW M5 E34 is one of the rare first version of the sports saloon. It is even rarer with the color combination of calypsorot with champagne interior.

There is a lot of paperwork collected from 1994 and the following years.
The car was owned by a retired Royal air force pilot and was used for long distance travel. Fully serviced on time and only at the official BMW dealerships. The only non original part on the car is the rear muffler which was changed.
It was imported to Bulgaria from the UK by the current owner in 2017.
Everything is in working order. The only part that needed to be completely overhauled are self levelling shocks on the rear, which unfortunately aren’t offered new original at BMW anymore.
